The Ford Escape is an excellent compact SUV that will make your Lewistown, State College, and Bellefonte drives exciting, efficient, and safe. As an ideal vehicle for families or a simple upgrade from a sedan, the Ford Escape is great for any of your daily driving needs.
To ensure that your Escape is always running in its best condition, it’s important to follow the manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule. But not to worry—our team at The Lake Dealerships has all the information you’ll need to keep your Escape in top shape.
Regular Service Tasks
There are a few service tasks that you should check on, or have checked out by your trusted auto technician. Every month, you should check your oil levels and tire pressure, as well as checking out your tire treads for wear and tear.
You should also look at your Escape’s battery connections once every six months to make sure they are securely attached. You can also clean these connections, if necessary.
Every 7,500 miles, you’ll want to bring your Ford Escape in for an oil change. However, this also depends on your driving habits; for some drivers, their Escape only needs an oil change every 10,000 miles. If you tend to drive in more severe conditions, you’ll need an oil change more often.
At every oil change, you should ask your auto technician to perform a multi-point inspection. This will ensure that vital components to your vehicle, such as the exhaust system, suspension, and steering, are working properly.
20,000 and 30,000 Miles
Every 20,000 and 30,000 miles, you’ll only have to make a quick stop to your service center. Your auto technician will install a new cabin air filter every 20,000 miles, and a new engine air filter every 30,000 miles. This will ensure that you and your engine are breathing in fresh air on your everyday drives.
100,000 and 150,000 Miles
At the 100,000-mile mark, you’ll need to have your engine coolant drained and replaced. Additionally, you’ll need to have your spark plugs replaced, as well as have your accessory drive belts inspected.
At 150,000 miles, you’ll want to stop into your auto service center for a few maintenance procedures. At this point, you’ll want to have your accessory belts replaced, your automatic transmission fluid changed, and possibly your timing belt replaced.
